Early 2009 EP by Mental Health Consumer (B. Ruskin), recorded over Thanksgiving 2008. This electro-IDM collection features five slightly unnerving tracks, from the analog bloops of "Four Oh Four" to the sinister dissonance-as-harmony of "Moody", and crunchy guitars and beats of "Chimera". With âDrawing While Fallingâ, Mental Health Consumer evokes an immediancy and late-autumn unrest that will hopefully inspire the listener. Topics: IDM, electro, techno, experimental, electronica
